Irelia has a bunch of skins to choose from. So, let’s find out which ones are worth buying.

Irelia, The Blade Dancer, released in 2010, is one of the older champions in League of Legends. Despite being a decade old, she remains one of the most popular champions in the game, especially among skilled players.

The reason for her massive popularity is her kit. She has a very skill-expressive kit that is both flashy and deadly. Her kit allows her to duel almost any champion in the game and look cool while doing it. She is also a very versatile champion when it comes to role assignments. She can be played successfully both in the Mid lane and the Top lane.

With the gameplay stuff out of the way, let’s talk about her skin. Over the years, she has received twelve skins, some good and some bad. So, let’s go through all her skins and find out which ones are worth buying.

12. Nightblade Irelia

  • Release Date: November 16, 2010
  • Price: 520 RP
  • Chroma: None

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • Voice Filter
  • Additional Quotes
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects

First, let us start with the good things about the skin. The skin has an absolute killer splash art, and it also has a pretty decent model. Other than that, the skin doesn’t have much going for it. The SFX/VFX is very similar to the base Irelia skin and doesn’t have new animations.

So, that’s why skin places dead last on the list.

11. Aviator Irelia

Aviator Irelia, in terms of effects, is very similar to Nightblade Irelia. But Aviator Irelia has slightly better model work. Additionally, if you are into the old-fashioned aviator look, you might want to pick it up.

10. Order of the Lotus Irelia

  • New Visual Effects
  • New Recall Animation
  • New Animations

Order of The Lotus Irelia feels like a more refined version of the base Irelia skin. Thematically, the skin is a perfect match for Irelia, and the mode looks beautiful. But the effects department is where it loses out. Although the skin has new VFX and SFX, it’s very similar to the base skin.

9. Frostblade Irelia

Frostblade Irelia, despite being one of her earlier skins, is a very good skin. The skin offers a lot of amazing value for a skin that costs 975 RP. The skin has fantastic ice particle effects and has crisp sound effects. It also has a golden chroma.

8. Infiltrator Irelia

For a skin released in 2011, Infiltrator Irelia is a very solid skin. It has good sound and visual effects and models. The skin also costs only 975 RP.

Overall, a very solid skin.

7. Sentinel Irelia

Although the “Ruination” event might have been one of Riot’s most disastrous events, it did give us some solid skins, and Sentinel Irelia is one of them. The skin has great SFX/VFX and likely the flashiest visual effects out of all the Irelia skins. Unfortunately, its flashiness is one of the reasons keeping it from placing higher on the list. It’s visually pretty to look at, but it is very distracting in the middle of an intense duel.

6. Divine Sword Irelia

Divine Sword Irelia is what Order of the Lotus Irelia wished it would’ve been. The skin is very elegant and radiates a sort of divine aura. It also has some of the best chromas for any Irelia skin.

Overall, a solid skin.

5. PROJECT: Irelia

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects

The PROJECT has always produced solid skins and PROJECT: Irelia is no exception. The skin has a good-looking model, good visual effects, and a very crisp sound design. Unfortunately, the Prestige version of the skin completely outshines it. So, I would suggest getting the Prestige PROJECT: Irelia if possible.

4. iG Irelia

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects

  • New Recall Animation

iG Irelia was created in honor of Duke’s winning performance as Irelia in the Worlds

iG Irelia, like other iG skins, is really well-made. The effects and animations in iG Irelia are very clean. The skin also features Invictus Gaming’s signature black-and-white theme. Additionally, it has probably one of the best recall animations out of all her skins.

3. High Noon Irelia

The High Noon skin line has always been one of League’s best skin lines. The skin line has so many good skins, such as High Noon Ashe, High Noon Lucian, and High Noon Senna, but out of all the skins, High Noon, Irelia takes the cake. The skin, despite being just epic skin, is one of the better ones.

The skin has a very natural feel to it, and it captures her personality as well as gameplay.

2. Prestige PROJECT: Irelia

Prestige PROJECT: Irelia is an improved version of the base PROJECT: Irelia skin. It replaces her base white and pink color scheme with the prestige white and golden theme. The skin also adds some extra golden effect to all her abilities, and they feel slightly smoother.

1. Mythmaker Irelia

  • Release Date: January 12, 2023
  • Price: 1820 RP
  • Chroma: 6
Mythmaker Irelia Chroma

Mythmaker Irelia currently has six chroma, and each chroma costs 290RP. The Ruby version of the Mythmaker Irelia chroma can only be obtained by purchasing the Mythmaker Irelia chroma bundle. The Gilded version of the Mythmaker Irelia chroma is event-exclusive.

  • New Model
  • New Sound Effects

  • New Recall Animation
  • New Voicelines

Mythmaker Irelia is the newest and likely the best skin added to Irelia’s skin collection.

Starting off, the skin has a very pretty-looking splash art. It emulates the Chinese New Year theme quite nicely. In terms of animations, it was quite laggy on release, but Riot recently fixed the laggy feel. Now, it is one of the smoothest-feeling Irelia skins. Also, the effects are quite fantastic on the skin. Furthermore, the skin has a good assortment of chromas.

Overall, if you are looking for an Irelia skin, you might consider buying Mythmaker Irelia.
